change to warmer weather in a few minutes. >>> the latest on the clean-up from hurricane sandy, most of new york's public schools and its subway system reopened today. many residents along the northeast are still struggling to recover. nearly 1 1/2 million people are still without lights. it's become a growing problem as the temperature continues to drop. >> somebody has to help us. somebody in the world has to do something because we shunt be like this. this is not right for us to live this way. >> u.s. marines have joined national guard troops to help distribute food and aid to resident. the death toll from sandy has topped 110 people in the united states alone. most of the victims from new york or new jersey. >>> the news edge in virginia, police in alexandria want you to take a good look at this surveillance video. they're looking for two men and a woman who broke into a couple businesses on eisenhower avenue two weeks ago. the suspects first attempted to break into one business, couldn't get in. so they tried and succeeded at two others. police are asking anyone who recognizes t
: good evening, brian. for several days, hurricane sandy dominated the conversation but there are the new numbers out tonight from the labor department. employers adding 175,000 jobs, but the jobless rate ticking up from sun.8 to 7 -- 7.8 to 7.9%, again, unemployment taking center stage in the campaign. we begin in springfield, ohio. president obama making three stops in the state and telling crowds the state has made progress from four years ago and that republicans would reverse the trend. >> if it's a choice between going back between the top-down policies that got us into the mess or the middle-up, bottom- up strategies that have gotten us out of this mess and they keeping us going. >> reporter: to west alice, wisconsin, now. governor mitt romney telling his supporters the job market may remain stagnant no matter who is elected. >> this is about america. it's about the future that we're going leave to the children. we thank you, and we ask to you stay out of all of the way to the finish line. we're going win on tuesday night. >> reporter: stay in wisconsin now, vice president joe bide
in the areas hardest hit by sandy. one of the biggest concerns today, getting to the polls. how officials in new york are making it easier to cast ballots. 7:21. we'll be right back . it's my coffee when i want it. you press a button, you have great dunkin' coffee. i got my coffee for the morning, i got my dunkin' k-cup packs for the rest of the day. only available at dunkin' donuts restaurants. america runs on dunkin' coffee. look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. i'm mitt romney, we had a good group of people. good group of employees out there. this was a booming place. and mitt romney and bain capital turned it in to a junk yard. i was suddenly, 60 years
many trails they'll have open but they have so muchsnow since sandy was there this is the second time that they have been able to open so early in the last ten years. >> i know a lot of areas were disaster areas. >> people could not get out there. >> things seem to have been restored and snow shoe wants to capitalize. may keep your furnace a little busy tonight >> it's quite chilly out there no wind. that means that temperatures can get even a little bit cooler. we had a couple of spots already down into the upper 20s last hour. so let's check and see where we stand right now in terms of where the temperatures are and where the nation is in terms of this cold air. we are starting with high temperatures today. d.c. with 49. buffalo 40. boston 45 degrees. you get out towards chicago, they were at 45 as well. not a lot of warm air. we have a few shots that are warmer than normal but not nearly at many as we saw last week. tampa at 67 degrees. phoenix at 882. most of the country starting to trpped down into a cooler and also very quiet weather pattern for the time being. here is where tem
the national poll? >> they showing him even or down and since sandy, there is a momentum. he has a chance to act presidential and in the national polls. he seems to be trending and doing very well. >> mark light, of focus on virginia today. mitt romney with two appearances in virginia. we saw beth parker, the vice president biden. how critical is this state and what kind of arguments have they made? >> there are three big states: ohio, florida, and virginia. ohio being number one. i think florida is a republican state with 29 electoral votes and that is why they spent with ohio as 18 and that is why they have gone after the 13 electoral votes in virginia. hadn't gone democratic since 1964. linden banees johnson wanted it. sixty% he got in northern virginia. the bellweather counties or prince william and low den. he got 58% in prince william, in 2009, the republican mcdonald did very well in the southwest. the democrats are getting clobbered in cold country and they have to concentrate in getting out the african- american vote, which is very large, the same level of enthusiasm. i heard of
that last push after super storm sandy when he appeared working together with a republican governor. and really at one point at the convention and so forth, how much did that sort of message, how did that resonate with voters or anything to do with his last minute push? >> since i predicted the election two and a half years before that. the beauty of the keys as they stay the same. through all the ups and downs. obama had some real low points in this campaign. some pretty good high points. but you can say he ran a great campaign. he gave a mediocre convention speech. he had a historic melt down in the first debate losing it by the biggest margin of any candidate in history. and he was faulted by those same pundants for not being specific enough and clear enough. all of the receipt troe specktive pundans. so easy to explain once you know the answer. they can point to anything they want. it has no scientific validity whatsoever unless you have a system that can predict results in advance retrospective explanation. it's fun. it's great but zero scientific value. >> you have those 13 cr
to areas hardest hit by sandy. officials say voting will go forward in new york and new jersey. generators will be brought in to polling centers without power. in some locations paper ballots will be used. county officials could ask for voting will be extended by a day if turn out tomorrow is less than 25%. >>> some victims got a rude wake up call today. an earthquake. a small tremor hit around 1:20 this morning. centered in ringwood new jersey. some residents reported hearing a loud boom at the time. there was no reported damage. >>> and today residents will be allowed back to their homes to chek out damage and grab belongings. more than $150 million in aid for those affected by the super storm. unfortunately, more bad weather may be on the way with high winds and rain expected from that system that tucker mentioned a few minutes ago later this week. >>> the hurricane caused a ripple affect causing the cancellation of the new york city marathon. >> some of the runners got to work helping in the recovery efforts. sara is back in studio with more on that. really good to hear. >> it really i
sandy, thankfully. but still a lot of people without power. it is cold. that is the last thing they need right now is another storm moving in. we'll continue to follow that. >> tough times in that area. >>> there was a high voter turnout across the country. >> that led to long lines in many places. sky fox captured these pictures from fredericksburg, virginia. it is a little bit dark but you can see it wrapping around the building there. this is around 5:00 yesterday evening. a line just snaking around the polling place but many of you told us there didn't seem to be enough voting stations, enough ballots and working equipment. it is an issue president obama addressed in his victory speech last night. >> whether you voted for the very first time or waited in line for a very long time, by the way, we have to fix that. >> now, a lot of people experienced those long lines and you actually experienced long lines in early voting. >> early voting was ridiculous. a minimum three hours. i went on a couple of different days trying to early vote, three, four hours at all the locations th
of sandy get in the way of casting a ballot. many residents voted early at an administrative office or at a voting bus that made its way to shelter. state officials also encouraged people to cast provisional ballots for the presidential race. >>> in new york, andrew cuomo is also allowing for affidavit voting. voters can now go to any polling place in the state and sign an affidavit and vote at that poling place. if they go outside of the registered continue you, they can only vote in the presidential an u.s. senate races. >>> high is a battleground state and if the presidential election is close a winner might not be declared until after election day. that could be impacted by how many provisional ballots are cast. no republican candidate has ever won the presidency without ohio. >>> everyone will be watching the number, of course and the clock closely today. more on that is coming up next. >>> the weather won't disrupt election day plans in our area. but we are still keeping an eye on a nor'easter. tucker has more on that when we come back. maryland, it's time. time for marriage e
. beach erosion coastal flooding a guarantee and heavy flooding. and right where the impacts for sandy are are worse. won't be as strong as sandy but looks like it's going to bring misery. all right. our forecast shg 48 today. winds north and east at 5 to 10. got to watch that storm system carefully. we think the worst will track to our east. and nice warmup here for the weekend. veteran's day sunday. we observe it on monday. temperatures by monday for the holiday back in the mid 60s. that's a little better. that's a look at the forecast. back to you at the desk. >> thanks very much, tucker. >>> it is estimated that a million people in maryland and the district of columbia voted before election day. and millions more are expected at the polls in this tight presidential race. joining us now with analysis is michael who reaches public policy at george mason university. also an author. republicans and the black vote came out. thanks for coming in. first of all we mentioned the early voting. does the number of people who have voted early particularly in this area suggest anything in partic
, or hurricane sandy, were all of those things factors that tipped the scales in favor of the president. >> everybody likes to pontificate the day after. i'm sure it played a part in it. we'll know in the next few weeks whether all of it played a part in it. for i fact that, if you look at the polling based off of what came out this summer and what came out this fall, mitt romney was defined in the campaign. the romney campaign did not shoot back, did not fight back earlier in the summer. that held. that stuck. the debates pushed him back up but in the end, the obama campaign hay great turnout machine. i mean unprecedented in turnout machine. i oversaw the turnout with bush in the re-elect in 2004 and when you've had five years to build a turnout machine, think about that, the romney campaign had eight months. the obama campaign had five years. we had that same situation in 2004 when we were going against kerry. you have a lot more resource that you can dedicate. you have a better organization. it proved ultimately the victory. >> the next question is, moving forward with the republican
and heavy rains along the coast. another round of storm surge up there. not going to be as strong as sandy but they don't need it up here. for us we're on the western edge of this system. some of the spiral bands that dip down back into the washington area will mix with or change to believe it or not winter weather. say it allison. >> no. >> we are 40 degrees. 23 degrees. as the storm taps into that cold arctic air, it's going to chill the atmosphere around here and allow that to transition over to snow. could there be a light coating? yes. i don't think we'll see large accumulations around here but could be enough to coat the ground in some places. roadways temperatures are in the 40s. it will be kind of wet later this afternoon for the roadways. >>> there's your 7 day forecast. things get better. warming up for the end of the weekend. 60s by next monday and tuesday. >> can't even say that word yet. >> it's too early. veteran's day storm in 87. that's what everybody remembers . won't be that big. >> let's go to julie wright. if you haven't scared her away. >> are you there, julie? >> lala
